I wrote a terrific post (at least I thought so) about Oracle’s recent claims of 585 wins against SAP in the last year (their fiscal year). I named names and deal specifics about where their wins were actually losses, where we actually did lose to them, and the number and specifics of deals we have taken from them, including Safe Passage specifics. So I’m feeling good about it and thinking “damn this is a first, revealing the inner workings of competitive win/loss specifics,” and then I remembered we are in quiet period. Fuck. As soon as I am in the clear I will post it.
UPDATE: While I may be gagged, Jason Corsello is not.
Oracle says they are taking share in the applications market from SAP. SAP says they are stealing Oracle customers and increasing market share over Oracle.
